There is a simple solution to improving your communication and buiilding better, healthier relationships. It's called Law of Connection. Make it work for you!

Are there certain people you cannot seem to communicate with--at home, at work, or in your community? You say one thing, they hear something different. You simply do not understand one another, and you cannot explain why. The only thing you are certain of is that the lack of connection leads to disappointment, frustration, and conflict.

Now in LAW OF CONNECTION, Michael J. Losier gives you the key to successful communication. Using the principles of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), you will soon master the few simple skills needed to create better understanding with people in every aspect of your life.

With tips, tools, exercises, and scripts to guide you, you will discover:
--the three conditions for connecting
--techniques for calibrating your conversations
--four easy methods for effective communication
--tips for creating positive rapport in all kinds of situations
--a special section for teachers, trainers, and anyone who makes group presentations.

My best communication advice - If you need to communicate with someone about something, don't put it off. A problem can get bigger than it needs to be if you procrastinate and don't communicate.

My best communication advice came from Wayne Dyer - would you rather be right or kind? Sometimes correcting people or fighting over something stupid just isn't worth it.

Think before you write, especially emails where there is no face to face or voice inflection and written words can be taken the wrong way.

Couldn't we all use help communicating at times? Some situations and relationships are difficult.

Marianna said...

Best communication advice? Listen more than you talk... and maintain a non-judgemental attitude. No one is going to communicate or come to you with problems if they feel like you're going to cut them down or judge them.

My best advice on communication is look the person in the eyes and their face when they are talking..put all attention on them. Nod to the person and let them talk until they are finished. Pay close mind to what they are saying instead of interrupting them to say what you want. Take interest in their topics and a good smile throughout the conversation never hurt anyone.

arrowheadmac said...

Having a good command of the language helps in better commuication.

Jessilyn82 said...

My best advice is to not forget the importance of face to face contact in building a connection-technology is great but it can't replace seeing someone in person for building confidence and trust.
